Canada and France have tried their best to approach Trump in a polite and reasonable manner, but it seems that Trump is refusing to reciprocrate the niceties.

Just hours ahead of the G7 summit, Trump engaged in a war of words with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter. Trump's heated tweets come after Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron approached him with warnings that his trade tariffs would do no good for both the U.S. and its allies.

Trump tweeted that Trudeau was "being so indignant, bringing up the relationship that the U.S. and Canada had over the many years and all sorts of things." 

He also accused both leaders, who have teamed up against Trump's tariffs decision, of imposing 'massive tariffs' and creating 'non-monetary barriers' themselves.

But Trudeau and Macron are standing their ground. Trudeau responded by saying that "American jobs are on the line because of his actions," and Macron supported such statement by saying that "a trade war doesn't spare anyone."

Macron even took it a step further, saying that the U.S. allies are more than willing to sign a "6-country agreement if need be."

Despite the tension, Trudeau and Macron assure that Trump will be "welcomed" at the G7 summit.
